10AM Sunday 7/7/19 “Workers Approved of God” 2Timothy 2
In the Old King James Version of the Bible, 2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to show thyself approved unto God..” In the New King James Version it says “Be diligent”, both phrases convey the message that we are to make a sincere effort to please our Lord, Jesus Christ. Studying God’s Word will take our time and effort if we sincerely desire to “rightly divide the Word of Truth.” Distractions to our studying and Spiritual growth must be recognized and avoided. And know this; that when we read the Word of God and study it, Jesus is pleased, because we are growing spiritually. He can bless our lives when we work on knowing and practicing His Word.
